Tom Hanks joins the cast of Wes Anderson’s new film

Wes Anderson’s latest project, The French Dispatch, recently premiered at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, garnering critical acclaim and much deserved praise for the filmmaker’s unique artistic vision.

Starring the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Frances McDormand among many other big names, The French Dispatch has been described as a “meticulously arranged delight.”

Anderson already has his eyes set on his next project, which was initially planned to be set in Rome but is now being scheduled for Spain. Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton have already been reported to be included in Anderson’s new cast, which should come as no surprise since this would be Murray’s 10th collaboration with the eccentric filmmaker.

Another surprise addition to the film’s cast is Tom Hanks, who has never worked with Anderson before. Details about Anderson’s next production are still ambiguous, but his potential involvement can be “small and cameo-like in nature”.

With multiple reports claiming that the set for the new film has already been constructed near Madrid, it is safe to say that work on the project will soon be underway.

When asked about the new film, Tilda Swinton stated: “Though the film is shooting in Spain, ‘it’s not about Spain.'” Anderson was reluctant to comment about the new project, claiming that he is “not ready to share any details” at the moment.
